Have I finally ditched my daily foundation for good? Perhaps.
When BB Cream first became popular, I was really interested to find a BB Cream that was perfect for me. My belief was that it was a moisturiser with a slight tint to allow a very light coverage. I have tested a few different brands out, and now I have fallen in love with with this Garnier Skin Active BB Cream.
Full coverage foundation has never floated my boat and lightly applying foundation never seemed to give me what I was looking for. I wanted a product that was going to allow my skin to breathe and give it moisture. Also, this product had to give enough coverage that reduced the redness in my cheeks and the yellow tone to my forehead and chin. This BB Cream from Garnier ticks those boxes for me.
This cream contains SPF15 to help with UV protection. It offers 24hr moisture and illuminates the skin. Oh. And it has the scent of grapefruit. What more could you want? I have found that since I have swapped my usual foundation for this BB Cream my skin looks brighter, my skin is smoother and my breakouts are less frequent. It is so easy to blend with your finger - but I prefer to use a beauty blender. Plus, the tube is so easy to throw in your handbag too for touch ups, but it is really rare that I need to top up my make up during the day now because it looks so natural.
The cost was surprisingly low at just £9.99 and it was easy to match the light tone to my skin. There is other shades, but there is also other BB Creams by Garnier for different skin types, so it should be easy for you to find what you re looking for.
Do you use BB Cream? If so, what do you love about it?
